COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES
ful to students who are to do any kind of teaching, (2) Special
courses which are intended to give preparation for teaching
certain schools, grades, or subjects. Of the special courses
there are three groups: (a) Courses in rural education, (b)
Courses in elementary education, (c) Courses in secondary
education. Students who expect to teach only in the elementary
grades, town or country are advised to take courses in
group (b). Those who expect to do any teaching in any
kind of a high school should take courses in group (c).
Courses in group (a) should be especially helpful to those
students who expect to teach in rural schools either of an
elementary or high school grade. The general courses in education
should make up about one-half or two-thirds of the
student's work in this department.
Facilities for Observation and Practice Teaching.
A model elementary school of three rooms is maintained
on the campus. The primary room has the first and second
grades. The intermediate room has grades three, four and
five. The grammar school room has grades six and seven.
A kindergarten department will be added 1923-24. Each of
these rooms will be in charge of a specially trained critic
teacher. It is the purpose to make this a model school where
student-teachers may see expert teaching done under average
conditions. After much observation and careful preparation
student-teachers will be permitted to do teaching under the
supervision and the direction of the critic teacher. Students
who expect to do high school teaching will find in the Academy
ample opportunity for observation and practice teaching. Education
students will also have the privilege of observing the
work of the public schools both in the city of Abilene and in
nearby rural schools.

control of schools. This course aims to help teachers in their

attention will be given to that subject. The principles studied
